TRENDENCIAS – Do what makes your heart sing…

My philosophy in life has always been to do what makes your heart sing. I have always followed my passion for drawing and other artistic pursuits, even though it was not considered a “moneymaking” move. A couple of years ago I was introduced to TV interviews for my line, and as a fashion commentator. It was on one of those shows that I met my friend Carina Silva. We were part of a panel of experts talking about the inauguration of Donald Trump and we had an instant connection. A couple of weeks later Carina asked me if I was interested in …

Marrero Collection Logo Contest

I love designing new scarves and cover-ups, and I really enjoy seeing a pic of one of my customers wearing one of my pieces. I’m pretty much always creating something… and recently I started feeling like the Marrero Collection logo needed a facelift, a new look! But I need your help! My friends Xavier Maranon & Flavio Iryoda came up with a few ideas and I thought – why not ask your friends for their take on the one they like the most. So why not a contest?

I’m happy in anticipation of what’s coming in 2018

Read the headlines on any given day and it’s easy to become jaded and discouraged about tragic events happening all around the world. But despite the depressing headlines, there are many positive things to look forward to as we begin a brand-new year. I’m looking to 2018 as a fresh start, not looking at the past but focusing on a new chapter in my life waiting to be written. I will work on discarding preconceived notions of what others think, and recreate the person I want to be. Trying not to compare myself with others. Not listening to the thoughts …

My 2015 Gratitude Jar and Why you need to join me in 2016

2016-gratitude-jar

One of the wisest things I did in 2015 was my gratitude jar. I am so happy that I stuck with this exercise because the results were nothing but incredible. These days our attention is pulled in every direction, we spend our lives figuring out our next move, our next goal, how much we don’t have. Always thinking that we are lacking something, that we never have enough, or that the grass is greener for someone else… on the other side. The gratitude jar is a simple exercise to help remember the good things that have happened to us throughout the …

Carlos’ favorite thing for 2015 – “Shireen’s Favorite Things”

CarlosFavorite-Blog

2015 was a great year! My Marrero Collection line was featured in many publications and TV spots. I met a lot of interesting and exciting people. One of my favorite TV appearances was definitely the segment on Channel 7’s Deco Drive “Shireen’s Favorite Things”. I remember getting the call from Shireen while I was doing my meditation walk. I was shocked to get the call to be featured on a entertainment show that I have watched for many years. I was very nervious at first on the day of the shoot, but Shireen made the experience a dream come true. Isn’t it …

“How heavy is this glass of water?”

glass-of water-blog

A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?”     Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz. She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If …
